"How to Sing to Open Your Heart (Japanese Title: Kokoro wo Hiraku Utaikata/ KOKOUTA) " is a cute romance visual novel that will be fully voiced in Japanese, with Japanese, English and German text like its predecessors, "How to Fool a Liar King (HTFALK) and “How to Take Off Your Mask (HTTOYM)."  This will be the 3rd installment of the Story of Eroolia series. 

The game also follows the events after the series' 2nd game, How to Fool a Liar King (HTFALK). Myana, the heroine, is the princess as well as ruler of Laarz, the country of cat people (luccretias), who was introduced in the previous game.

Each game in the series features a different heroine with a problem unique to them and one love interest that is destined for them. As a whole, the How To games comprise a series that explores a fantasy world where humans and luccretias, the cat people, coexist.

There will be a brief introduction to the world and series as a whole, but players are encouraged to play HTFALK to better understand the story of KOKOUTA. The game will be available across multiple platforms such as Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. PC releases can also be found on Steam as well as itch.io.

*The German version may be released after the English/Japanese version has been released. 

An alliance pact is now made between Laarz, the country of Luccretias and Eroolia, a human kingdom. With Eroolia promising Laarz that they will seek a cure for the "Inadaptability Disease" that luccretias suffer from, KOKOUTA's heroine, Princess Myana travels to the human country to see how humans are treating her people on top of how the pact has progressed. What was originally meant to be a short trip, Myana is caught in the crossfire between the luccretias and humans. Ever since meeting Ludovic, chief of the Imperial Guards, she is reconsidering her decision to work with humans.

"Both humans and luccretias are hurting because they're trying to fraternize with each other."
"Yet we're able to grow, widen our knowledge and find something we haven't known before just by helping each other."
"Do you really think this is worth it despite all the hurt it's causing?"

Setting

Eroolia and Laarz are the two countries located within the island of Eroolia, which is known as the isolated island to the outside world. The two countries have terrible relations, as Eroolia, which is mostly occupied by humans, can't get along with Laarz, which is known as the country of the luccretias, the cat people. At the ending of the previous game “How to Fool a Liar King”, Laarz has finally agreed to an alliance with Eroolia although there are still many problems to iron out between the two countries.

roseVeRte has been making games since 2010, and has just entered its eight year in the otome game industry! The company has had no history of cancelled projects, and as such, I am confident I will be able to fulfil all obligations in relation to this campaign for my newest game if this campaign succeeds. Preparation of both digital and physical rewards is a new challenge to roseVeRte, and of course it is not something without risk. Yet, it's a challenge that roseVeRte wishes to undertake to get closer to fans and spread the enjoyment of the world of Eroolia.

  1.  Is there any DRM free version?
    I'm sorry but there's no DRM-free version of the game. itch.io version will use limited installation DRM (http://www.roseverte.net/drm.html)
  2. Can we choose to get the game on itch.io/standalone?
    Yes, but the game will have the installation limit (check the answer of question no.1). Steam version will not have this limit.
  3. Will there be any mobile version game rewards?
    Mobile version game will not be included in any rewards, as they will be released through official iOS and GooglePlay/ Amazon store, which forbids selling the product outside the official store, including crowdfunding.
  4. What is the final price?
    It will be 14.99 USD, same like the previous game.
